When they say OK, you ask if the little stool goes along (with the attachments inside the stool) and it is another yes, you whip out that money and hurry out

    Here is a pic of my Singer. It is a 15. Made in the 1950s. I bought it at a yard sale in 1980 for $25 and have been using it since. I love love my Singer.

    I was able to use one of my die sets to cut out block #21 of The Farmer's Wife (now sitting on my sewing machine waiting to be sewn together).

    I was able to finish a small quilt that was made from purple scraps cut into 3.5 x 6.5 inch rectangles - not a large quilt, might need some borders.

    Then, I moved onto cutting up some denim I have into 6.5 inch squares - am going to use 2.5 inch squares all the way around each of them to make a quilt.

    So many projects, ...

    A trip to Salem for a quilt show, via Dalles for fabric and another shop in Salem ... never did make it to the quilt show. We had a fun day anyway.

    I was able to buy more fabric for a quilt I am going to make for my daughter - Twister - and my friend was able to purchase a back for a quilt she is making for her granddaughter.

    A lot of driving and visiting.
  6. Front & Back Quilt Designs

    by , 10-07-2012 at 06:52 PM
    I would like to quilt the front of my GD lap quilt differently from the back. It's a strip quilt on the front which I would stitch in the ditch. I want the otheside to look different. Would I use two pieces of batting and connect them when I bind it? I know this sounds like a silly question, but I'm just not for sure. I want this to turn out great. Thanks!

    A few years back I bought a Pfaff Grand Quilter and the Next Generation quilting frame thinking I would quilt my own quilts. Wow what a learning curve. I have quilted 25 or more quilts but I never felt like they were very good. I just didn't have the control (or it seemed) and most everything was a simple meander. So one day I took my quilter off the frame and put it on the table and did a few table runners. It made a huge difference. They looked so much better and I decided to try quilts without ...
